/ Company - ACT


American Carbide Tool Company (ACT) is the largest domestic manufacturer of standard single point brazed carbide tipped tools. We have over 50 years of tool making experience.

ACT offers the widest ranges of styles, sizes, and grades in the industry. Additionally, our inventories are unsurpassed, insuring timely delivery of your order.

Known for the uncompromising excellence of our products, we have applied our years of tool manufacturing expertise to our Precision Tool Division. ACT’s Precision Tool Division produces the most advanced cutting tools including PCD (polycrystalline diamond) & CBN (cubic boron nitride) tipped inserts and tools, as well as precision ground cutting tools made from carbide and other materials. The result is precision tools of the highest quality.

Our capabilities have been further enhanced by our move to a new 36,000 square foot facility. This, along with our continued commitment to improving our capabilities by investing in leading edge equipment, has enabled us to continue to provide superior quality tools.

ACT has a long-term tradition of using and providing only premium materials. In keeping with that tradition, all of our stock PCD & CBN inserts are made with only the highest grade superabrasives materials purchased from leading manufacturers. ACT can also, upon your request, supply specific grades of PCD & CBN from their respective manufacturers to suit your particular needs.

The combination of our Standard Tool Division’s high volume production operation and our Precision Tool Division’s state-of-the-art equipment provide ACT with a unique capability. Our large inventories of steel and carbide enable us to provide precision special tools faster and more economically than our competitors.
